I believe that SF has upgraded many of their functions (including count()) to go back up to 252 days.

That graph is actually the ratio of D:$SPX, with the ema(20) of that ratio drawn on the graph.

Try this (here I will use SPY instead of $SPX, which is only updated each day AFTER the market closes):

Fetcher[
set{ratio, ind(D,close) / ind(SPY, close)}
set{ratioema, cema(ratio, 20)}

symlist(d)
draw ratioema on plot ratio

Looks like SPY is right up against its 20-day moving average.

Another way - even simpler code for new users:

Fetcher[
ma(13) below ema(8)
ma(13) 1 day ago below ema(8) 1 day ago
]



This still gives you too many hits, so I usually add in a price and volume constraint ...

Fetcher[
ma(13) below ema(8)
ma(13) 1 day ago below ema(8) 1 day ago
close above 5
average volume(30) above 250,000
]

Fetcher[
close above 5
average volume(50) above 250000
count(roc(21,1) above 25, 50) above 2
roc(21,1) above 25
]



This might help. The first two lines simply screen out low volume/low price stocks. The next line

count(roc(21,1) above 24, 50) above 2

requires that the stock have had at least two instances within the last 50 days where the 21 day return was more than 25 percent - you cannot screen out instances where that occurs on consecutive days without visual inspection, though.

The final line

roc(21,1) above 25

requires that one of those two instances is occurring today.

You can change the look back period in line 3 from 50 days to whatever you want.

I use Stockopedia to screen for viable candidates for long term investment.

You and me both - I had stayed long in all of my portfolios using the 6 month system and have been beaten up pretty badly over the last two months. A situation where I second guessed the algorithm (thinking that the markets would not drop after the Fed raised rates). Now I will ride out a few months of turbulence, I guess.

Dumb question - can you buy stocks in pre-market? I have never even looked at it, but how does one buy a stock before the market technically opens? Maybe I'm thinking it is like a supermarket or any other store?

Here is how I code for a ranking of key asset classes (SPY, IWM, AGG, EFA) over a specified time frame. This base code should meet your needs. If you want to look at ranking the previous week, just set up a second set of user defined variables that have "1 week ago" at the end.

Fetcher[

set{var1,WEEKLY ROC(14,1)}
set{var1a, IND(SPY, var1)}
set{var1b, IND(IWM, var1)}
set{var1c, IND(EFA, var1)}
set{var1d, IND(AGG, var1)}

ADD COLUMN WEEKLY ROC(14,1) {14 week performance}

SET{RANK1A, COUNT(var1 is above var1a,1)}
SET{RANK1B, COUNT(var1 is above var1b,1)}
SET{RANK1C, COUNT(var1 is above var1c,1)}
SET{RANK1D, COUNT(var1 is above var1d,1)}
SET{RANK1E, RANK1A + RANK1B}
SET{RANK1F, RANK1C + RANK1D}
SET{RANK1G, RANK1E + RANK1F}
SET{RANK, 4 - RANK1G}
ADD COLUMN RANK {current rank}


SYMLIST(IWM,EFA,SPY,AGG)
ADD COLUMN SEPARATOR
SORT ON COLUMN 5 DESCENDING
chart-display is weekly
CHART-TIME IS 26 WEEKS

General Discussion · close crossing below ma(30)

Fetcher[
set{closebelow, close - MA(30)}
set{it_happened_here, count(closebelow crossed below 0,1)}
draw it_happened_here
draw ma(30)
market is S&P 500

Perhaps this would help - I am trying to figure out how to get a column that tells you the number of days since the cross below occurred, but so far nothing.
